Beginning Birding Workshop

     (Free!) May 31 - June 1

Are you just getting started in birding? Are you seeing birds but donʼt know what they are? Are you worried that you donʼt know enough to go on field trips?   If youʼve answered yes to any of the above questions and want to learn about birds and birding, then this in-depth workshop is just what you need. We will cover topics ranging from how to choose and effectively use a pair of binoculars to how to find and identify birds. The workshop will concentrate on birds found in our local area, but will also provide knowledge and skills that will allow you to bird anywhere.  The goal is to increase your enjoyment of watching and learning about our fascinating feathered friends!             All ages welcome, but children 12 and under must participate with an adult. For more information or to register contact Ken Salzman at: or 756-0347. Registration is limited to 25 people, so register early!

The group camp is separated from the main campground and situated in the midst of excellent habitat.  The site is accessed by a narrow, gravel drive and is designated for tent camping only but smaller RVs can be parked in the adjacent lot.  Cost for the two days is $20.00 per camping unit to cover the rental fees.   For more information please contact Pam Borso at or (360) 319-9004.
